NORTH BAY – In today’s digital age, anyone can get rich by uploading the crypto currency or getting DTF with the NFT’s, but this North Bay Entrepreneur wants to invest her money locally — in squirrels.
“When you are in a business, like I am, you see things,” says Minnie Fox, local person of business, “and based on those things you make investments.”
“The other day I saw a squirrel – it looked determined, so I knew I had to get to the bottom of it.”
Squirrels Looking for Small Handouts (Because Their Hands Are Small)
Fox explained that she noticed that squirrels were storing away various nuts and foraged goods. Not one to be left out when a nutty business opportunity arises, she invested.
“I covered some rolls of Canadian Tire money in peanut oil and handed them out to the local squirrels.”
Fox has a gut feeling that the squirrels will use the funds to expand their operation, sell their stocks and prosper – bringing some much needed business back to North Bay.
“They would grab the oil covered bills with their mouths and wring their hands, which is a typical response of small business owners.”
